My own Spam Primer site has given you the basics about spam, “phishing” and other e-mail pests, but ScamBusters goes deeper — they analyze the scams and cons that you’ll find in those spams. It’s not just the latest scams online, but in the real world too. Their free newsletter keeps you up-to-date on the new twists con men are trying to rip you off. And it’s not just for you, but you want to know what your elderly relatives will have pitched to them, too — they are often considered prime targets. Hey! Let’s be careful out there!
